This is the appellation that expresses the area of Ancona, capital of the Marches region. The production area is limited and surrounds the Monte Conero area that is the only hill on the Adriatic coast between Trieste and Gargano. The unique climatic conditions with excellent sun exposure and sea breezes not to mention the soils which are mainly chalky clay with low fertility, allow the grapes to mature only when the numbers of bunches are limited on the vines. The wine has colour, body and a good level of tannins that combine well with the strong aromas and power of youthful exuberance. This is a wine is not always aged in wood and evolves well in the bottle.
